HCA Healthcare has committed to maintain Mission Health’s charity care policies.  It also has a long history of caring for all members of the communities they serve, especially patients who participate in programs like Medicaid and Medicare.  HCA Healthcare is committed to giving back to their communities, providing $2.8 billion in uncompensated care, meaning they subsidize gaps in Medicare and Medicaid payments and cover costs of care for uninsured patients. Additionally, HCA Healthcare donated $23.6 million in cash contributions to local charitable organizations last year alone.
